In today's service and information oriented organizations, both non-profit and for-profit, there is a need for managers who can broker information, sustain employee commitment, understand the work environment, and expedite customer service. Jobs such as these require managers educated in organization dynamics, personnel and human resources management principles, management control, and quality production methods.
The same qualities that attracted Mercedes Reyes to Sage as an undergraduate – attentive faculty and a low faculty/student ratio -- made Sage's graduate School of Management first on her list when she was ready to pursue her master's degree.
